    Plugins not updating

    Hi Guys,

    I have noticed that I do not have any "third party plugins" listed on my LMS /server settings / plugins page.

    Found this in my server log and was wondering what it means and how to fix it ?

    (if i enter the URL into a normal web browser, I can get the page to load no worries)

    cheers in advance

    From you other thread (about alarm settings), I think you mention you're using a ReadyNas to run LMS and that you're unable to install beyond 7.9.0. I think this may be the issue on the Plugin difficulty. There have been a number of threads about ReadyNas support for LMS it might be worth looking at. I'm not a ReadyNas user: I run LMS on a Raspberry Pi with files on a QNAS. I dare say someone with more hands-on experience will be along with more specific advice.

    I think your LMS has reached the end of its usefulness, I'm sorry to
    say. The ReadyNAS' Perl is pretty ancient (5.10, I think), and I
    strongly suggest you get a Raspberry Pi to run LMS on. You can still use
    the NAS to store the music files. You'd be surprised how much better
    this will run.

    I am feeling that you are right.
    I started to look at the Raspberry Pi but got quickly confused by the overwhelming varieties/accessories/daughterboards/ etc etc.

    It just looked too hard.

    I will go down that rabbit hole again and see what I find.

    The NAS is a bit power hungry to have on all the time, so would be looking at having my files on a USB HDD plugged into the Pi.
    Can that HDD be accessed via a windows PC on the same network ? ( to add new music )

    Any clues on what I would need ?
    Just a basic stand alone unit that can run LMS ( mostly mp3 & FLAC files, some at high rez )
    I run gigabit LAN to ASUS modem/router.
    Touch is LAN , 2 booms and 2 classics are wifi.

    give picoreplayer.org a try - it's linux optimized to run Squeezelite
    and/or LMS on a Pi.

    Yes, this can be set up.

    I'd recommend a Pi4 with 2GB of RAM, and a good case. I'm using the
    popular Flirc case, as it's cooking the CPU well.

    The minimum that you need is a Raspberry Pi (probably a 4 or a 3) and a power supply.

    See

    An alternative to a Pi based solution could be a CORE32 from Polyvection. It is probably dearer than a Pi based solution but the aim is to be easier to setup but may have limitations to achieve that .

    First units have not been delivered (shipping promised about now - 3rd week of June) so you'll have to wait for real user opinions.

    .
    I use a Pi to run LMS with an attached hard drive. The PCp player includes Samba which will allow window 10 system to connect to the pi. I also use my windows system to add music and also use the hard drive attached to the pi as a on-site backup.

    I am not a Linux expert and I was able to set it up and use it.

    You will need a pi, case, and power supply. If you are concerned about electric use and heat, you might want a pi 3B. If you want a faster USB hub and want the latest get a 4. Read through the Pi core player documentation, it is not difficult but you do need atttention to syntax details.

    I had put off the transition to the pi, but wish I did it sooner as I am very happy with the little box that take up little space, makes no sound, and uses a lot less electricity than running a larger computer.

    Good luck.

    +1. I could have written this . Exactly my setup and experience. I have two 3b+ pcP LMS only (with USB HDD), and have deployed 2 others to friends.

    I have 4 that I just started paying with, but have found the 3B+ fine for my needs.

    There are several threads where "new to the setup" (myself included) have been walked through by allot of good people and advice. If you like, I'll search and post the threads...
